i suspect this is in the wrong category... Moderators is there a better place to move this to?

to get more gain look at the attenuation between 1st and 2nd stage on the module. I don't have a blackface schematic, but I'll bet it's similar to the Clean. So on the clean it's R26 and R28, check your board measure those two r's and lets see what value they are...

First off you'd need to start using proper language, with this "2" and "rite" you seem like a 12 year old.
No offence meant, just constructive cristicism.

On the grailtone.com website there are some mods that are pretty well documented.

so that's 2.1M and 220k which make one hell of an attenuator.

I would put maybe a 1M or a 470k across the 2.1M. Note that if you do that the module will get louder as well and have a little bit of a tone shift due to C10 (i would expect a little less high end).

I have no idea how 'good' this mod will sound but you will start to overdrive V2.

C10 allows high freq to bypass the attenuator. You may want to take it out and see how you like the sound.

Also for a little more poop, you can put a 1uF in for C7 (i think it not populated right now.

i'm not sure i understand.... is it that with the mod you need to turn down your master to ~8 where is was at ~12 before the mod?
